We jumped on the craze of the Elf on a Shelf this year and it's been pretty fun. Ariana named our elf Lola and she's a pretty shy tame elf compared to these other mischievous elves people have. Here is what she's been up to since we got her.
She came one day while Ariana was at preschool and hid in our tree.
We found out she was pretty shy the day we found her hiding by Santa. We think she was missing the North Pole.
Lola started liking being with us us and brought us a special breakfast from the North Pole as well as a little wooden tree for Ariana to decorate for her room.
With Ariana being so good we found Lola measuring her stocking one morning to see how many goodies Santa could fit in there.
Lola was hanging out upside down in the kitchen.
She got bored one night and started doing one of Ariana's puzzles.
Lola took a stroll in a barbie car. Ariana loved that and pushed her around in it.
She got into my Christmas M&M's one night and practiced writing her name.
She was found reading Christmas books by Ariana's nightlight one morning.
Lola likes snow, since she's from the North Pole and Ariana found her hiding in her snow boot by the backdoor.
She made a bed, or ball pit (we're still not sure) one night in the bathroom sink using the cotton balls. Ariana did not like this.
Hiding in Mommy's apron pocket one morning.
Lola got busy one night making lots of tiny paper snowflakes.
I'll share more of Lola's antics on Christmas Eve. She's a silly one and the first thing Ariana says when she wakes up is "Let's go find Lola!"
